Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.
~Henry David Thoreau
The first month of the new decade turned out to be filled with a glut of the types of experiences that define the human condition.
Starting out with hope and promise, I set myself plans to take more steps forward than backward. And now as the month closes, I must choose to look forward and see that despite January’s heartaches, February begins tomorrow and the ground beneath the steps not taken in January await my impression.
The dreams I dream are not to be constrained by the 31 days of a cold and brutal month. While my future feels permanently affected by the revelations of January 2010, the future calls me to take further steps in directions that I have neglected and in areas that I need to grow.
Tomorrow is a new day, a new month, and another beginning.
